Live in Detroit a 2003 release of a live performance by the band The Stooges. The surviving original members of the Stooges reunited in 2003—nearly thirty years after they had disbanded—and scheduled a handful of live shows, including an August 14 concert in their hometown of Detroit. The gig was postponed due to a widespread North America blackout, but the band played at the DTE Energy Music Theatre eleven days later. The performance was released on DVD in March 2004.
Allmusic's Greg Prato called Live in Detroit "essential viewing for Stooges fans one and all." Michael Molenda of Guitar Player praised the film's "clear and punchy" sound and said the performance "isn’t so much about watching old men relive their youth, as it is about being pummeled into submission by 50-year-old thugs." Michael Dwyer of The Age observed, "both the static framing and occasionally damaged video transfer are appalling from an audio-visual perspective, but that actually serves the Stooges' archetypal rock minimalism to perfection." Brian James of PopMatters also criticized the video quality, and said the performance itself "feels a bit hollow, too. The very feeling that drove the band’s music—some kind of loathing that was spread amorphously inwards and outwards—is absent, replaced instead by a lovefest between Iggy and the crowd."
